Australian children are adapting to life without a classroom, team sports and birthday parties, and these six kids have hit Prime Minister Scott Morrison with some important questions about COVID-19 and the future.
Like most Australians, they are unsure how long social-distancing practices will remain in place, and they want to know how long it will be before they can give their grandparents a hug again.
“I’ve been getting a lot of messages from boys and girls right across the country, people asking a lot of questions about what this coronavirus is — or COVID-19 as they also call it,” Mr Morrison said in a segment for Behind The News (BTN).
“What it means for you and why everyone is doing everything differently at the moment, and how long that’s going to go on for.
“These are important questions — it’s an anxious time for people, and I thought I would take a bit of time to answer some of those questions for you.”
Huon, Jenna, Journey, Aryan, Anastasia and Sam did not hold back, firing off some tough questions to the PM.
